Victor Bartley Wikipedia
Victor Bartley (born February 17, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenseman who is currently under contract with Örebro HK of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Bartley has previously played for the Nashville Predators, Montreal Canadiens, and Swedish team Rögle BK.
Bartley played major junior hockey in the Western Hockey League. As an Undrafted Free Agent, Bartley started his first full professional season in the ECHL with the Utah Grizzlies before signing a one-year European contract with Rögle BK of the Swedish second tier HockeyAllsvenskan. Bartley led all Rogle defenceman with 34 points in 52 games during the 2010–11 season and initially signed a contract with top league club, Djurgårdens IF before he was mutually released to earn his first NHL contract, signing a two-year deal with the Nashville Predators on May 24, 2011.
After attending the Predators 2011 training camp, Bartley was reassigned to AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals for the 2011–12 season. Bartley established his credentials with the Admirals to post 39 points in 76 games from the Blueline, finishing 10th in the American League.
During the lock-out shortened 2012–13 season, Bartley received his first NHL recall and made his NHL debut for the Predators in a 6–0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on March 8, 2013.
Bartley was traded to the Arizona Coyotes on January 15, 2016, in exchange for fellow defenceman Stefan Elliott. Bartley was then immediately packaged with John Scott and sent to the Montreal Canadiens for Jarred Tinordi.
Having completed his contract with the Canadiens, Bartley left as a free agent to sign a one-year, two-way deal with the Minnesota Wild on July 1, 2016. Bartley missed the entirety of the following 2016–17 season with the Wild, after suffering an injury in the pre-season.
Unable to earn an extension to his deal with the Wild, Bartley left as a free agent without featuring for the club. With limited NHL interest, on September 15, 2017, Bartley returned to Sweden in securing a two-year contract with top flight club, Örebro HK of the SHL.
Bartley was born in Ottawa, Ontario and moved to Maple Ridge, British Columbia when he was five years old.
